  journal={J. Networks},
WebVR, a multi-user online virtual reality engine, is introduced. [] Key Method Sharing of data through improved Kademlia network model is designed and implemented. In this model, XOR algorithm is used to calculate the distance of the virtual space. The model greatly improves the hit rate of 3D geographic data search under P2P overlay network. Some data preprocessing methods have been adopted to accelerate the data transfer. 3D Global data is used for testing the engine. The test result indicates that…
